Laura Ancona, a data scientist for the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Innovation and Technology, has created Parkadelphia, a data visualization mapping every parking regulation in Philadelphia. The map uses open data from the Philadelphia Parking Authority and the City of Philadelphia to make it easy for users to understand information on residential parking zones, metered parking spots for cars, motorcycles, and scooters, city parking lots, valet parking, and emergency routes for any given location throughout the city. Ancona is updating Parkadelphia as she verifies parking rules for particular streets and develops a feature illustrating the most in-demand parking spots in the city.
